back to uncertainty. we want the economy to get better. we will like it to be better soon, as fast as it can happen. when that happens, then this competition for our best and brightest talent will go up. in that environment, i am concerned that as they are weighing -- not the personal threats to themselves which they are willing to take -- but when they are weighing the financial certainty for their families that they will come down on a different side than government service. that is an important question. we have an all volunteer military. it has been stressed. this is another stressor. we need to be mindful of this because we are competing for the best talent. we have been getting it. there are magnificent people that raise their right hand, civilian, uniform, or whether they serve as contractors. it does not matter. they are all working hard to do the right things. it is preserving that. there is an impact here with what is going on. it is coming to our level. they are telling us there is an impact on them, and we need to be mindful of it. >> general alexander, could you comm
to be fiscally responsible and reduce the deficit. to make velft to grow our economy and to meet our obligation to our seniors, to our families and to our future and the republican budget fails all three. republican budget threatens our nation by undermining our economic growth and by shifting the financial burden for the deficit, and the deficit reduction, to our seniors and the middle class. republicans have made their choices clear, end medicare as we know it, adding costs to seniors today and ending the medicare guarantee tomorrow, slashing investments necessary for economic competitiveness and giving millionaires an average of $400,000 in tax breaks. republican budget eliminates protection for millions of our sickest seniors who depend on nursing home and home health services and republican budget will increase taxes for average middle-class families by $3,000. their choices will cost two million jobs next year alone and decrease economic growth by 1.7%. in contrast, the democratic alternative present serves -- preserves the medicare guarantee and makes investments in education, innovation
national debt is bigger than our entire economy. unless we change course, we will add another 9 trillion over the next ten years to our national debt. that debt will weigh down our country and our economy like an anchor. at some point, lenders will lose confidence in us. they will demand higher interest rates. and when they do, interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans, families. as interest rates rise, debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget and the debt will overwhelm the economy. our finances will collapse, the safety net will unravel and the most vulnerable that is who suffers the most under a debt crisis. a debt crisis would be the most predictable disaster in our history i look back at 2008 like it was jerds sometimes and i remember seeing all the all that was happening and i remember the panic meetings with the treasury secretary and looking back we can see what happened but at the moment it was a crisis that hit us like surprise and look what happened at the meantime look at the trillions of dollars of wealth loss, l
security at this time is not the deficit. it is the economy. it is the lack of jobs. it is a future where the u.s. cannot compete with its global peers. this will bring us closer to that scenario. chairman ryan and i share wisconsin. this is a blue-collar county where people are proud of the work they do and they want to be working. but they are struggling. four years ago, 2000 employees lost their jobs. a company announced they were shutting down. we do not help them or america when we keep tax incentives for companies to ship jobs overseas instead of incentivizing companies to hire in wisconsin and in america. we do not help them when we cut programs and raise taxes on the middle class so we can lower the tax rates for the top earners in this country. that seems to be what we received in the budget that is on our guest today. budget should reflect values. what we need to do is focus on economic growth and how to get the people of america back to work. we need a real path to prosperity. when we invest in infrastructure, research, development, small business loans, we can increase competi
it is important to realize that it is possible to make investments in our economy today, create jobs, repeal the sequester, and still reduce our deficit in a responsible and laled way. -- and balanced way. in closing i urge my colleagues not to be scared by the rhetoric that sometimes we hear. instead, i urge my colleagues to support one of the multiple budget proposals that reduce our deficit responsibly while creating jobs today and protecting the important programs like medicaid and medicare for generations to come. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. woodall: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield myself such time as i may consume. i thank the gentlelady for being with me on the floor today. i'll say that we sometimes have some controversy in the rules committee, mr. speaker. there is a lot of responsibility that lies in the rules committee. with 435 folks here in this chamber. we all would like to have our say. we'd all like to have our say probably more than once. and the rules committee's tasked wi
of a balanced approach that protects the american economy, the ryan republican budget guts education, medical research, infrastructure and even public safety. the ryan republican budget would actually jeopardize the economic recovery. it wouldn't help it. and in case you're thinking it -- huge and painful cuts can buy an awful lot of deficit reduction, think again. instead congressman ryan's cuts will buy more tax breaks for the wealthiest among us. this budget isn't a serious attempt to reduce the deficit. meaningful deficit reduction will require shared sacrifice, including contributions from those who can best afford to contribute. today budget committee chairman patty murray will introduce a budget that reflects the principle of balance. senator murray's plan, the democratic plan, will cut wasteful spending, reduce the deficit and close tax loopholes that benefit the rich. and it will invest in the things that help our economy grow: education, preventive health care, worker training, roads and bridges. it will invest in a strong middle class. and unlike the ryan republican plan, it won't
-sixth of the economy in order to be able to gain control of our lives, and of course it's going to be a mess. what does the government do that is good when it starts interfering with our lives? there are functions for the government. they need to remember what those things are and leave the rest of us alone. >> neil: what they discovered, as you warned -- this is prior to your prayer breakfast meet and greet with the president -- that all of a sudden the goodies would be showcased up front. the problems would be later. the goodies were fewer, the problems many more, and the cost of this potentially much, much hire than the thought. how is all of this rolling out now? >> well, of course the reason that it was done in secret, rather than in a transparent manner in which it was supposed to have been done, is because there are so many bad parts of it. there's so many obligations so many new taxes associated with it. it's incredibly expense simple. it was supposed to lower the cost. it has raised the cost of the premiums for average family, and in the neighborhood of $5,000. this is a disaster. and the real
reserve's two day meeting on the economy wraps up. that begins at 2:30 eastern time. >> coming up, the head of immigration and customs enforcement testifies about the release of nearly 2000 immigrants because of budget constraints. the 2014 budget plan put out by chairman paul ryan would balance the budget in 10 years and put in place medicare changes. the chamber should finish work on boating on the measure on wednesday. here is tuesday's debate. mr. ryan: i bring forward and present the budget resolution for the fiscal year 2014. we believe that we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget and that is precisely what we are bringing to the floor today. our budget balances the budget within 10 years and it does so without raising taxes. balancing the budget will help us foster a healthier economy, it will help us create jobs. in fact, two leading economists released a study analyzing our budget and its positive effects on the economy and jobs. in the first year they said it would, quote, boost the economy immediately, increasing both of our economy by a whole percentag

jobs and improve the economy in every one of our districts, in every state in the union. i would turn, if i could, to my colleague, mr. polcan, who has some of the rations. >> i am glad you brought this amendment forward, mr. blumenauer. when i was on the joint committee on finance, we were the only committee in the country that had to approve every single dollar that came through from the recovery dollars. in our state, every single dollar came to our committee. i got to see exactly where those investment dollars went to our transportation projects. we had a report at the time from the road building and vertical construction industry, not your most left-wing organization, that said 54,000 jobs were saved or created in wisconsin because of that investment in infrastructure. i remember sitting in this very room and i asked dr. elmendorf that same question. i said is it true, and he set up to 3.3 million jobs were saved or created because of those recovery dollars. i can tell you in wisconsin, we saw the benefit. it came from the private sector. we saw the benefit for small businesses -
this economy. and i thank you once again, my good friend from california, for making all the important points this evening. mr. garamendi: washington, d.c., your leadership in this community has been known for some time and i thank you very much for joining us tonight. i want to do two things before i end. first of all, medicare is back on the table. the ryan budget takes up medicare once again and provides a voucher that will destroy it. i'm going to change this. medicare, 1965, president 2013, created by l.b.j., destroyed by the g.o.p. i don't think so. seniors don't want it. americans don't want it. the last campaign for presidency, this was one of the major issues and ryan is coming back with it. bad idea, bad timing. and i want to end with this, this is a great country. there is no other place in the world like the united states. it is one terrific country. there is enormous energy in this country, where people want to get a job and go to work and businesses want to grow and hire people. all of that is waiting for congress to get its act together, to get this sequestration out of the way
to the sequester republicans will not replace. just as the economy is improving for our neighbors and small businesses back home. in contrast, the democratic alternative will cren rate 1.2 million more job, stop the sequester and in committee, democrats proposed to close those special interest tax loopholes that riddle our tax code, republicans said no. democrats proposed to offset unwise republican cuts to medical research like alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes research at n.i.h., republicans said no. democrats tried to cut the special interest spending in the tax code to offset republican cuts to students who rely on pell grants but republicans said no. mr. van hollen: i yield the gentleman another minute and a half. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. ms. castor: the democrats in the budget committee proposed to strengthen medicare and replace the republican plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. all it does is simply shift the cost tour families and older neighbors. mr. speaker, this republican budget is not consistent with american values. it is not fiscally responsible. it is a
reduction is very important, but creating the millions of jobs that our economy desperately needs is even more important. i would go further than that. everybody -- i could tell you in the state of vermont and i suspect in the other 49 states, we have a serious problem with roads and bridges and water systems and schools, broadband. we need to invest in our infrastructure to make this country more productive. when you do that you create jobs. so i am a big fan of investing in the infrastructure and strongly supportive of that proposal. i would have gone higher. host: you can see here in wall street "washington journal," republican plan and blue plan in -- for the democrats. you can see that there. guest: that's the real issue. do you really think that the only way we can move to deficit reduction is cut, cut, cut? when revenue at 18.2%, the lowest in 60 years, i think there needs to be a balanced approach and we need to close outrageous loopholes that corporations enjoy. host: talking to bernie sanders, independent in vermont. folks are eager to talk to you. let's go to edward in grand pr
class and an economy built on nnovation. in my state of the union address, our most important task was to drive that economic growth. i meant it. we should be asking ourselves the questions -- how to make america a land for good jobs? how do we equip people with skills and training to do those jobs? how do we make sure that hard work leads to a decent iving? please feel free to sit down. i'm sorry. everyone is standing. maybe it was one of the effects of the sequester. you had to get rid of chairs. [laughter] i chose argonne national lab because few areas hold more promise for creating good jobs and growing our economy than how we use american energy. after years of talking about it, we are poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil that we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we had in 20 years. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from wind and solar. tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we are producing more natural gas than we have before that hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we have supported the
revenues. it would cut waste, add jobs and spur economic growth of the economy. it would reduce the deficit by an additional $1.8 trillion without jeopardizing the recovery or harming the middle class. it includes $1.2 trillion in new revenue obtained not by tax increases but by closing loopholes and eliminating wasteful spending that benefits the wealthiest americans and the largest corporations. it eliminates $4 billion in annual tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, an industry that is making profits. they don't need a tax break. in fact, they're making enormous profits. so, why does the ryan budget give them a government subsidy? the democratic plan invests in infrastructure, education, job training and innovation. it is designed first and foremost to help create jobs and strengthen the economy. the house democratic budget also makes critical investments in our future. $200 billion is invested in infrastructure, education, job training and innovation. helping to create jobs and strengthen the economy. these investments include $80 billion for an education jobs initiative, $50 billion
the people who otherwise woif brought a business into new york. to make the economy grow, you need inbound migration, not outbound migration. neil: it's a dollar's choice for you; right? i mean, you could go to north dakota, but north dakota's pretty far from here, so you go to florida? obviously, a lot of people do. there's no income tax, no estate tax, but a lot of peep don't like the heat. i'm just saying, you know, maybe people are looking at this wilbur saying there's a lot of high tax states. california is one of them. new york is one of them. tristate, new york city, new jersey, connecticut area, all high tax states. where do we go? that's what politicians count on. >> my guess is he'll be in the sense to bring in more tax than he will lose. i don't think you're going to have vast outbound migration, but i think the question is, did you break safe with the business community when you promise them the temporary tax, people sported it. i don't know very few people in the business community opposed it the first time because we thought, well, he's doing a good job. he's trying to fix it
it raises cannot continue. it is a threat to this country. it is a threat to our economy. common sense confirms it. any belief in science tells me to believe that there is no bigger problem. [bell] >> let me quote the cheney who said ronald reagan taught us deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he is wrong then and he is wrong now. deficits matter. anyone who supported the bush has no business talking about debt. [booing] i helped bill clinton balanced the budget and built a surplus because we had good economic times. good economic times should pay down the deficit as clinton did but to reagan and bush did not. in bad times you have to stimulate and the airtime as president obama is doing. it is like listening to lectures on hygiene from type 40 -- typhoid mary. is more important to america's pursuit of happiness? which is more dangerous to america's pursuit of happiness? eight 350 format before a 44 ounce big gulf. if you come to my house, you would find guns but no cans of soda. i have the right wing position on the giant drink soda thing. i do not like the idea. idea of the
and i think most of the country, greta, hear the president's articulated view of the economy, they hear the same rhetoric that led illinois to be a financial basket case. chase revenues, the revenues underperform. don't deal with the underlying spending problems and now what's going on in illinois? almost 10 billion dollars in unpaid bills, almost the second highest per capita debt of any state in the union, higher than average unemployment rate, a downgrade in the credit rating and all of these things are exactly what president obama portends as he articulates he needs more and more and more reven revenue. when you said that to him what did he say? >> look, barack obama is an incredibly skilled guy as relates to these types of questions. when it came down to it, he doesn't have an answer because there is no answer. >> what did he say to you? >> he said oh, it's a bipartisan problem in illinois and goes back and wants to relitigate illinois history, but i think what his challenge is, how to create a bipartisan agenda in this -- in this town when what he's doing is redefining terms. so,
, inheriting the same lousy economy that barack obama did, did you know that today we would have 7 million additional new jobs in america? let me help make that more concrete. 7 million new jobs is the equivalent of getting a job to every man, woman, and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [applause] and the stagnation under president obama doesn't follow uniformly. if you happen to be an environmental lawyer, you're doing great right now. the people who are hurting the most are those who are struggling in the least well-off amongst us. hispanicsident obama, unemployment climbed to 10%. african-american unemployment climbed to 14%. , i have beenme champing what i call opportunity conservativism. -- championing what i call opportunity conservativism. using the means of ascent of the economic ladder. explaining how our free-market system has served as the most incredible engine for opportunity for millions of people from all over the world, who come with nothing and achieve anything. the policies of barack obama do not work, and the people th
that republicans say over ten years we have another trillion dollars. i don't know how will a robust economy can be created out of this. i mean, if these tax increases which i agree, 1 trillion democrats are proposing and what happened. if it were that will be crushing to the economy. >> with all these tax increases in the pipeline to howland the world to we realize that dream a half percent average annual real gdp growth, the cbo is predicting for the five years. we have to get this growth if we are going to be on track to move toward a balanced budget. lou: the ryan budget does that in the course of n years, but it makes a huge assumption, as just under 2 trillion that would be derived from the elimination of obamacare. that does nothing, -- does not as i said at the outset seem likely. >> not feasible today, but once obamacare goes into effect it could be that those the observable as well a the possible rationing of health care could create such an outcry that this program would be watered down substantially. lou: do you agree? >> exactly. i think he is right. i don't think it wille overturne

country, our economy, our constituents, our friends and our neighbors. it is the single greatest threat to our economy and to our health care system. eventually, madam president, obamacare will be repealed. the american people will see the damage it does and demand that we scrap it and start over, but for now, we must at least defund it, at least for the life of this continuing resolution for the remainder of this fiscal year. senator cruz and i have been assured this amendment will fail and that obamacare will move ahead as planned. if that is the will of the senate, then so be it, but what obamacare does start to break down, when waiting times start to grow, when costs start to explode, when taxes start to rise, when doctors and nurses start to quit, when hospitals start to close, when businesses start to shutter, when patients and families truly find out what's in this bill, then the american people will know who is responsible for the catastrophe of obamacare and who, like the gentleman from texas, tried to help. madam president, a few years ago when then-speaker of the house nancy
. and look where we are going. today our national debt is bigger than our entire economy. unless we change course, we will add another $9 trillion over the next 10 years to our national debt. that debt will weigh down our country and our economy like an anchor. at some point lenders will lose confidence in us. they will demand higher interest rates. when they do interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans, families. as interest rates rise, debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget. and the debt will overwhelm the economy. our finances will collapse. the safety net will unravel. the most vulnerable, that's who suffers the most under a debt crisis. a debt crisis would be the most predictable disaster in our history. i looked back at 2008 like it was yesterday sometimes. i remember seeing all that was hatching in front of our eyes. i remember panicked meetings with the federal reserve chairman and treasury secretary, and looking back we can see what happened, but at the moment it was a crisis that hit us by surprise. look what happen
for this mess. no more taxes. we cannot take it in a bad economy. who knows what corn to happen in budgetary fluctuations between today and 10 years from today? entitlements is a very nasty way of saying we have to take something you ever earned and take it back because we cannot decide what to do with your money in the first place. i think the president is wrong. i am a democrat, but i don't support his ideas. tax-and-spend, tax-and-spend. the ryan budget is thdoa. this is too much, too late. who knows what is going to happen between today and 10 years from today? hopefully, i will be alive to get what i earned. i would rather be in my > to continue seeing this misery that the u.s. congress and this president and his health care act needs to be a pair back. it's not going to work. host: david on our independent line from mclean, virginia. caller: i have some questions. it's your guests along the line? host: we're just taking calls right now. our first guest is about a half- hour. caller: one, we would like to get clarification on the senate's passing the budget through an act of reconciliat
of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. if we've controlled spending and we've got a package, potentially what you've got is balance, but it's not balance on the backs of the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> sean: oh, deja vu all over again. the president demagoguing armageddon. what a shocker. here to talk about the plan he unveiled in the house is congressman paul ryan. welcome back to the program. >> great to be back, sean, thanks for having me. >> sean: let me first let you respond to the president. are you going to be spending every year? will your budget spend more money every year or will it spend less money every year than spending-- >> every year will spend more than the next year? >> yeah, i just listened to this for the first time, heard your interview and i think that was george stephanopoulos if the voice was right. >> sean: yes. >> that didn't sound too charming. and every
that president reagan saw in inheriting the same lousy economy that president obama did. do you know we would have seven million additional new jobs in america. let met help that i can make more concrete. seven million more jobs that is equivalent to giving a job to every man, women, and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [applause] presidenttion under obama doesn't fall uniformly. if you so happen to be a tax lawyer or environmental lawyer, you're doing great right now. but i'll tell you the people that are hurting the most are those are the struggling and the least well off among us. under president obama, hispanic unemployment climbed to 10%, african american to 14%. unemployment for young people ages 16-19 over 25%. that's why for a long time i've been championing what i call opportunity conservativism, which is every republican, every conservative should focus on easing the steps of the economic ladder. splange how ore free market system has served as the most incredible engine for opportunity, for millions of people to come with nothing
, giving spirit. visualize a future where the economy is growing at a steady pace, entrepreneurs are building businesses, taking risks, innovating, investing, employing millions of americans come and as they employ these americans, they move them up the economic ladder. we are able to pay off our debt. they are confident and proud of their country. partys a vision tea patriots have for america's future. [cheers and applause] a constitutionally limited, fiscally responsible government, where free markets thrive. [applause] and for this vision, we have been mocked, marginalized, and maligned by president obama, nancy pelosi's, and majority leader harry reid. and people from the republican establishment, like senators john mccain and lindsey graham. our are contemptuous of vision, and our vision is distinctly different from today's reality. our country is $17 trillion in debt, and we are headed to bankruptcy. our gross domestic product shrunk, and wall street profits it. seven out of the 10 wealthiest counties in america are right here in boom town d.c. like "the hunger games." corr
of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and with some private health systems, we could save more than $1.2 trillion that is the flawed sequester is suppos
when it comes to the economy. listen to this. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. martha: stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you think about that statement? he says you shouldn't just chase a balanced budget just for the sake of being able to say it is balanced? >> i think the president was spelling out his priority and his priority is not balancing the budget for the sake of balancing the budget. his priority is growth by spending more government money. that i think is his priority. and as you said, martha, that is in sharp contrast to paul ryan who is deliberately going after deficits and the debt and wants to balance in ten years. so you've got two very clear sides here. the president says, spending and debt probably sustainable. paul ryan said, no, it is definitely not. martha: is that debt sustainable, stuart? it's growing like wildfire. >> take a look at right now. a
to see paul ryan defund "obamacare." our economy cannot afford it. it must be every conservative's mission to defund it and move away from socialized medicine before it is implemented. 2013 is a challenge. let can to canton andit must be a year where we wage attack against and those forces in the republican establishment that hijacked the conservative movement. we must not rest. as conservatives, we all believe america is an exceptional nation. we do not want our beloved nation to have the financial books of greece or the gun laws of china. waynds, i fear that is the we are headed. president obama and his left- wing liberals -- the media is in the bag for this administration, and we all know it, which is why the grass roots of our movement must not sit on the sidelines. you must redouble your efforts and together we must fight those who want to sell out our principles. remember reagan's three pillars of conservatism -- free enterprise, strong national defense, and per-family social policies. we must not cede these principles to president obama on one hand, or the republican estab
will we see the economy take off, mr. norquist? >> guest: okay. we haven't had a trillion dollar in spending cuts what we had was an agreement by the president of the united states forced on him by the republicans to reduce spending over the next decade by a trillion dollars. so that's $100 billion a year. and those cuts haven't started happening yet. they're just beginning to kick in. the sequester is an additional $1.2 trillion over the decade. so what the republicans won in that big battle we had in 2011, the budget control act, was that obama wanted to keep spending, and he needed the debt ceiling to be increased because he'd spent so much money. and the republicans said, okay, we'll raise the debt ceiling is so the country doesn't default, but only if you agree to a dollar-for-dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. and so we got $2.5 trillion in spending restraint. not real cuts, spending less than obama had hoped in. in washington that's called a cut. if you wanted ten of something and you only got eight of something, you go i got cut too. actually, you walked a
